Center for Autism
At the United Services Center for Autism, our mission is to provide the highest quality of care for individuals of all ages with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) through the use of evidence based clinical practice that is centered around the gold-standard in autism treatment, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy. All programs provided at the Center are supervised by Board Certified Behavior Analysts in a comprehensive, family-centered manner.
Our clinical treatment is complemented by a broad array of supportive programming for both the individual with ASD and their most important support network – their family. Training for parents, teachers and community providers is also available. Because when you’re dealing with the complex puzzle of autism, we believe every piece counts.
Our clinical services include comprehensive assessments and diagnosis and the gold-standard in autism treatment, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. Counseling and other supports are also available as necessary.
Our supportive programming for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders includes social skills training, social thinking groups, recreational groups, vocational training and tutoring support.
Autism affects the whole family. That’s why a vital part of our Center’s approach is our specialized support groups for parents, siblings and grandparents of our clients with autism.
Our presentations and training on Autism Spectrum Disorders for parents, school personnel and community providers provide proven tools and strategies for living, teaching and working with children and adults with ASD.

Funding for the Center for Autism
Clinical services are billable to insurance. However, funding for all of the Center’s supportive programming, as well as Family Support Scholarships for those families who have no or inadequate insurance for clinical treatment, is provided through United Services’ fundraising dollars and grant monies alone.
